Re: 2002 954 Broken Engine (stator side)
Thanks man! It's just a spare motor I have sitting in the garage - I already have a motor in both the street and race 954's, so I'm not super concerned about it. Everything I've read has said that if you weld the case it will warp it and the head gasket won't seal. Guess I could disassemble it, get it welded, then get the block decked and hope they don't have to take too much off the top so the pistons and valves don't meet.
I might try cleaning the gob of JB Weld off of it and see if I can braze it (low heat). Luckily it's just a coolant passage so it's not under super high stress or anything.
